Transform your friends into dolls....

Photo: Tiny Pocket People

This morning an email arrived in my inbox with the title "Transformez vos amis en poupées".

For a split second I thought that I had misunderstood after all who would want to translate their friends into dolls?

Then I thought maybe this is not a bad idea, when Mr FF is not working on the house and working for a real client, he could carry me with him where ever he goes :-)

All that is required is to email a photo along with some details such as style of clothes etc together with payment and you will receive in return, your loved one in the form of a doll.

You can either order a French made doll by visiting Gabrielle's lovely website or an American doll by visiting the Tiny Pocket People website.

What a fabulous idea for a present especially if your loved one travels a lot....

Now all I need to do is find a photo, although I have mentioned it to Mr FF and he thinks that he could use it as a voodoo doll, nasty man that he is!

A demain,

  2. Very unique-I read on the website for Tiny Pocket People that they created a mini mom and dad for their child starting day care, and that's how the business started.

  3. What a hilarious idea..., and you could give yourself away as a gift!

  4. Oh those are so sweet it's ridiculous! Now that's a great gift.

  5. That is a great idea. What a great gift idea. I totally want one now!

  6. That's hilarious and slightly freaky. I'm thinking "voodoo" dolls, anyone?

French food Friday...Honey Lavender Icecream

I first tried this in Provence and loved the combination of the lavender and the honey.

For those of you that have seen the movie it's complicated you will recall that Merryl Streep made it for Steve Martin and it really looked great.

By using honey as opposed to sugar you end up with icecream that is deliciously creamy and the smoothest ice cream you've ever tasted.

Be warned, though - there is a caveat...this ice cream will not freeze as well as homemade ice cream usually does. For those of you who like your ice cream hard freeze the ice cream overnight to make it scoopable, instead of the standard two to three hours after churning


1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup dried lavender
4 egg yolks
2 cups milk
1 cup heavy cream


1. Bring the milk, cream, honey, and lavender to a gentle boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat.

2. Remove from the heat and let steep for 10-15 minutes. Strain and let cool a bit.

3.In a separate medium bowl, beat the egg yolks, then gradually add som…

a good idea..

Bonjour from a sunny but chilly SW France,

Hope that you had a nice weekend. We spent yesterday afternoon at a furniture auction but I will tell you more about that later in the week.

Last weekend we bought a lot of wine cases as we thought that they would make good storage, as shown in the photo above.

I particularly liked the idea of making a set of drawers with them or perhaps even a serving tray like this.

We have quite a few boxes and wine box ends so any ideas that you have would be gratefully received...
Mille mercis et bonne semaine a tous.....

French Food Friday.....

This week we are taking a break from the skinny theme, and indulging in some healthy pears with some also very healthy chocolate....

About Poires Belle Hélène

This classic French recipe were invented Paris in the 19th century and were named after an opera by Offenbach. What a romantic introduction for this French dessert par excellence, a true classic, found in at least half of the restaurants of the Hexagone. It only takes a few minutes to assemble this dish if you use ready-made ingredients; it is actually not much longer to prepare half of them from scratch (the poached pears and the melted chocolate). You can even make crème Chantilly and toasted flaked almonds for a deluxe version on very special occasions.

About Poires William liqueur

A pear flavoured liqueur. Liqueur is a class of spirit that is usually sweet and often served after dinner. It is produced by either mixing or redistilling spirits with natural ingredients such as fruits, plants, flowers, or chocolate. Sugar must be at…
